Abstract of Petition In earlier cases, William Trippe asked to relinquish his trusteeship over his brother Nicholas's estate; the subsequent trustee J.C.W. Powell asked to settle the debts of the estate and step down. Here, Samuel Hambleton says that he was counsel for Nicholas Trippe when Trippe was tried for assault with intent to kill one Orson Gore. The jury "acquitted said Trippe of the assault with intent to murder said Gore, but convicted him of an assault and battery upon him." Having paid the fines and fees levied on Trippe, Hambleton asks the court to direct Trippe's trustee Powell to reimburse him the amount paid, with interest.
